     Isabel de Harcla married Sir Richard de Vernon Sr., son of Gilbert le Fraunceys and Hawise de Vernon, circa 1278.3,2 Isabel de Harcla died circa 1342; "his widow surviving to 1342."1
     GAV-22 GKJ-22.

Isabel de Harcla per Potter email: [quote] Isabel daughter of Michael de Harcla was wife of Richard de Vernon senior who was also known as Richard le Franceys. Richard was dead by 1329 when Isabel sued William de Vernon for a third part of two parts of two messuages and a moiety of Netherhaddon [_Staffordshire Historical Collections_, Vol.9, p.9]. Isabel was still living by 1342 when there is an interesting entry in the Register of John Kirkby, Bishop of Carlisle:

"It is good to give testimony in the business of the needy. At the time of writing, the noble matron Isabel de Vernon was sane and in perfect physical health, as could clearly be seen in her manor of Mauld's Meaburn, where she lived. These letters are written in case anyone might make an assertion to the contrary." [R.Storey (ed.), _The Register of John Kirkby, Bishop of Carlisle, 1332-1352,_ (Canterbury and York Society, 1993), p.41]

The eldest son of Richard and Isabel was another Richard. His first wife was Eleanor de Frenes, but then by Feb 1312/3 he was re-married to Matilda de Camville daughter of William Camville. I can identify three children, William, Isabel and Matilda, before Richard died in Feb 1322/3.

Upon the subsequent death of his grandfather, William inherited his grandfather's estates (or at least those which were not held in dower by his mother and grandmother). His wife was a Joan whose surname I have not yet identified. [_Staffordshire Historical Collections_, Vol.12, p.58]

His sister Isabel married Richard de Stafford as stated before in this thread, but she was therefore the daughter of Richard de Vernon and Matilda de Camville, and grandaughter of Richard de Vernon and Isabel de Harcla. Again no connection to the Vescy family.

Their other sister, Matilda, received a grant from her mother in 12 Edward III (1338/9) of £20 yearly from the rents of her tenement in Haunton, Staffordshire [BL, Harl MS. 2074, f.34]. I suspect that this Matilda may then have married William son of Hugh de Venables of Cheshire.

BL Harl MS 2077, f.37 gives summaries of the following two charters:

1/ Covenant of marriage that William son of Sir Hugh Venables should marry Maude the daughter of Maude Vernon and of Richard Vernon. Dated 16 Edward III

2/ Maud who was wife of Richard de Vernon grants to Maude her daughter wife of William de Venables and her heirs an annual rent of £20 silver from the lands and tenements which were of John de Cave in Hamtton. Dated 23 Edward III.

I suspect that Hamtton was actually a misreading by the original copier of Haunton. Haunton was part of the Camville land held by Matilda de Vernon (nee Camville) in the 1327 Lay Subsidy, and so looks like this Vernon/Venables marriage was actually of the Haddon Vernons rather than the Shipbrook Vernons. [end quote]3

Isabel de Harcla and Juliana de Vescy I'm afraid this Juliana de Vescy should really be jettisoned from genealogies- she seems to first appear at the top (ie unreliable) end of a visitation, and was given extra life by Burke's et al. for a few centuries; but she can't have been the child of those parents, or her descendants would have inherited the Vesci lands that instead passed to the Aton family. The latest (and final paper) edition of Burke's peerage (2003) has a much improved Vernon pedigree, and Juliana no longer appears. Her place is (correctly) taken by Isabel, daughter of Michael de Harcla (Hartcla, Harclay) (sheriff of Cumberland 1285-98, dead by 1309, married Joan dau William Fitzjohn -ODNB), and sister of Andrew, (briefly) Earl of Carlisle.2

Clay's Extinct and Dormant Peerages (1913), pp. 41-42 shows that Philip Darcy, 3rd Lord Darcy (b. ca. 1352, died 1399) above had a daughter named Agnes. She is not mentioned in her father's will dated 1399 but, according to Clay, she is mentioned in the will of her mother dated in 1411. If this identification is correct, it would provide a new addition to Complete Peerage sub Kildare. Presumably Agnes was not in her father's will in 1399, as she was already married and provisions had already been made for her. Clay does not identify this Agnes Darcy's marriage.3,2

Alexander Cuninghame 1st Lord Kilmaurs, 1st Earl of Glencairn1

M, #55739, d. circa 1 June 1488
Last Edited4 Feb 2006
     Alexander Cuninghame 1st Lord Kilmaurs, 1st Earl of Glencairn died circa 1 June 1488 at Stirling, Scotland; "A few days after [28 May 1488], a battle took place between the hostile parties near Stilring, where the royal army was defeated, and where the king and the newly-created earl were both slain."1
     Alexander Cuninghame 1st Lord Kilmaurs, 1st Earl of Glencairn per John Ravilious:

King James III of Scots faced a significant rebellion at the end of his reign, led by (or for) his son Prince James, subsequenty King James IV. One of the few noted supporters of the King in 1487/8 was Alexander Cunningham, Lord Kilmaurs, who in early 1488 led his own forces in helping to decide the battle of Blackness in favor of the King. Due to his faithful support, one of the last (if not the last) acts of the reign of James III was the elevation of Alexander Cunningham to the dignity of Earl of Glencairn on 28 May 1488. The account in SP provides details re: the charter:

" The words used are ' facimus et creamus eundem nostrum consanguineum Comitem in exaltationem sui honoris, perpetuis futuris temporibus Comitem de Glencairn et Dominum de Kilmauris nuncupandum.' " [1]

Ravilious cites: SP IV:234, cites Maidment's Reports, App. vi. 93.2 He was Lord Kilmaurs.2 Alexander Cuninghame 1st Lord Kilmaurs, 1st Earl of Glencairn was also known as Alexander Cunningham 1st Lord Kilmaurs, 1st Earl of Glencairn.2 He was Earl of Glencairn on 28 May 1488.2

     Alexander Cuninghame 5th Earl of Glencairn was born circa 1510 at Scotland.2 He married Johanna Hamilton, daughter of James Hamilton PC, 2nd Lord Hamilton, 1st Earl of Arran, circa 26 November 1526; His 1st wife, later divorced.1,2 Alexander Cuninghame 5th Earl of Glencairn and Johanna Hamilton were divorced on 11 July 1545.2 Alexander Cuninghame 5th Earl of Glencairn married Janet Cunningham of Caprington, daughter of Sir John Cunningham of Caprington and Elizabeth Cuninghame, on 22 January 1550; his 2nd wife, date is of contract or similar.1,2 Alexander Cuninghame 5th Earl of Glencairn died on 23 December 1574.1,2
     Alexander Cuninghame 5th Earl of Glencairn      per van de Pas: "Alexander Cunningham, 5th Earl of Glencairn, was born about 1510, son of William Cunningham, 4th Earl of Glencairn, and Katherine Borthwick. He was only sixteen when, circa 26 November 1526, he married Joan Hamilton, illegitimate daughter of the 1st Earl of Arran. As Lord Kilmaurs, he was, like his father, a supporter of the Reformed faith as early as 1540. In May 1544, with his father and the Earl of Lennox, he made an agreement with Henry VIII, King of England, which resulted in all three receiving substantial pensions from the English king.
     Shortly afterwards they were defeated by Regent Arran at the Battle of Glasgow, where Alexander's younger brother, Andrew, was killed. In September 1544 Alexander and his father declined to assist Lennox in his expedition to the west of Scotland. In 1545 he divorced his wife and married Janet Cunningham.
     In 1547 his father died and Alexander became Earl of Glencairn as well as one of the most fervent supporters of John Knox. He was one of the few nobles motivated purely by religious zeal. In 1555, after Knox's return to Scotland, Glencairn invited him to his house at Finlayston near Glasgow, where Knox preached and celebrated the Lord's supper. In March 1557 Glencairn's name appears as first of the four signatories on the letter sent to Knox, inviting him to return from Geneva. His signature also appears second, after the fourth Earl of Argyll, of the five on the first bond of the Scottish Reformers subscribed on 3 December 1557. In May 1559 when Marie de Guise, outraged by the destruction of the monasteries by the 'rascal multitude', attempted to march on Perth, Glencairn barred her way with 2,500 men.
     After the parliament of August 1560, Glencairn, Morton and Maitland of Lethington were sent as ambassadors to Queen Elizabeth to request her assistance against the French invaders and propose a marriage between her and the 3rd Earl of Arran. They obtained a favourable reply as the former was concerned, but the latter was flatteringly declined.
     In June 1561, Glencairn, Arran and the 5th Earl of Argyll were commissioned to carry out the edicts of the lords for the destruction of 'all places and monuments of idolatry' in the west. This resulted in the ruthless demolition of, among others, the abbeys of Paisley, Fulford, Kilwinning and Crossraguel.
     At the end of 1561, on the return of Mary, Queen of Scots, Glencairn was appointed Privy Councillor but was always intolerant of the queen's papal practices. In June 1565, with other Reformers, he vigorously opposed the Darnley marriage and joined Moray on the 'Chaseabout Raid'. In December he was declared guilty of the crime of lese majesty and then went to Berwick but was back in Scotland early the following year.
     He was in Edinburgh at the time of the Rizzio conspiracy but was not involved, and was one of the first of the lords to join Mary at Dunbar after the murder. Thereafter Glencairn became one of the queen's chief opponents. He had nothing to do with Darnley's murder, was not in Edinburgh on the night of the signing of the 'Ainslie Bond', and strongly disapproved of the Bothwell marriage. On 15 June 1567 at Carberry, he was one of the leaders of the army under Morton against the queen and Bothwell. A few days later, in an act of futile vandalism, he and his servants demolished the altar, ornaments and images of the Chapel Royal at Holyrood. On 29 July, after Mary's abdication, he carried the sword at the coronation of the infant king.
     In May 1568 Glencairn commanded one of the divisions against Mary at Langside. In September 1571 he was taken prisoner at Stirling on the night that Regent Lennox was killed, but was rescued soon afterwards. He frequently visited John Knox on his deathbed and on 24 November, the day of Knox's death, was nominated along with Morton as a candidate for regent but was substantially outvoted. Glencairn died on 23 November 1574.2
